for about 20 countries and includes the west coast of the u.s., hawaii, as well, alaska, as well. >> yeah, i understand, rob, we've been hearing there's a full coastal evacuation in effect in hawaii right now. and we get this sheet and i know you have it too of the coordinates and the estimated arrival time. what does that translate into in terms of waves and what people can expect? and really how much time they have to get out of harm's way? >> well, the pictures that we've been showing, those dramatic pictures where you see water and debris on all sorts of stuff moving rapidly inland, being pushed in like that and tens of miles inland, there was little warning. this is very close to the shoreline, and the epicenter was about 80 miles offshore. so the wave -- the tsunami after the quake happened hit that shoreline about 15 to 20 minutes later. virtually no warning at all. and you get the full force of that impact without any sort of buffer from the ocean. now, as this thing travels across the ocean in all directions down to the south up to the north off to the east, it does begin to lose it

has reached out to the iaea, the international atomic energy agency and to the u.s. the japanese determined here in a desperate race to avoid a catastrophic meltdown. entire families who escaped the shadow of the doomed nuclear power reactors are coming here worried they were exposed to radiation. we were given extraordinary access to the test sites where medical teams wearing hazmat suits used megaphones to direct the parents and their children where to go. they're using geiger counters and hand-held scanners checking everyone one by one, especially the most vulnerable, the children scanning this little girl's hair, and there are countless young faces here. there are three nuclear reactors in trouble tonight at what's called the fukushima daiichi plant. just two days ago an explosion at reactor one released radioactive material into the air, then just yesterday a second blast at reactor three releasing more, and while dramatic, these are not the worst case scenarios. tonight there is new concern about reactor 2 becoming dangerously overheated. inside each of those buildings it's
unlikely that the u.s. would move forward unilaterally. that's all the indications we have gotten from very senior officials here at the white house. instead, they have made clear that they would want to build some sort of a coalition, us a noted, before the u.n. or with nato. bottom line with nato forces that china and/or china or russia could block that, seems likely they would, in terms of any effort to move forward militarily and nato strained with resources in afghanistan. unclear whether or not nato would be on board. still a lot of work behind the scenes, but i think it's fair to say that it's highly unlikely that the u.s. would more forward without some sort of support from either the u.n. or nato, wolf. >> standing by to get more from the white house. hala gorani is standing by at the cnn center as well. we're awaiting moammar gadhafi. getting ready we're told to speak to journalists gathered at that journalist hotel in tripoli. we'll check in to see what's going on there as well. stand by for that. nic robertson is at the hotel and we'll, okay, have live coverage of gadhafi when h
